North Vision Song Contest 10, often referred to as NVSC 10 was the 10th edition of the North Vision Song Contest. It was held in Bergen, Norway, following Alida's victory in the ninth edition. It was the second time in a row that Norway hosted the contest which marked the first time that a country hosts twice. Norsk rikskringkasting (NRK) chose the Bergenshallen located in Bergen to host the edition. Tone Damli and Markus Foss served as the presenters for the show.

Fifty-one countries participated in the edition, among them the debutant Faroe Islands. The edition saw the return of eight countries; Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belgium and San Marino returned to the contest after the one-edition break while Croatia, Georgia, Montenegro and Morocco were able to return to the contest after they were banned for one edition due to severe cheating. Albania and Iceland announced their withdrawal from the contest due to financial issues while Spain withdrew due to being in the pre-qualification round of the edition.

The winner of the edition was Ukraine with the song "Zerkala" performed by Ani Lorak and Grigory Leps which gathered 163 points. It was the first time that Ukraine won the contest. It is also the first time that a duo won the contest and the second time that a non-English song wins the contest. Turkey finished as the runner-up, 8 points behind the winner while Andorra finished third for second time after the third edition. Moldova and Montenegro, who finished fourth and fifth respectively, achieved their first top 5. From the big 5, only Ukraine and the United Kingdom achieved a top 10 place with the first achieving their fifth top 5 result in a row, making it the only country to achieve this so far.

Location

Bergen is a city and municipality in Hordaland on the west coast of Norway, on the peninsula of Bergenshalvøyen. The city was established before 1070 AD. Bergen is the administrative centre of Hordaland.

As of 2014 the municipal population was 274,500 making it the second-most populous city in Norway (The Greater Bergen Region population is 406,800). The area covered by the municipality is 465 square kilometres (180 sq mi), and it consists of eight boroughs.

The remains of the quays, Bryggen, is a World Heritage Site. The city is an international centre for aquaculture, shipping, offshore petroleum industry and subsea technology, and a national centre for higher education, tourism and finance. Natives speak the distinct Bergensk dialect. The city features Bergen Airport, Flesland, the Bergen Light Rail and is the terminus of the Bergen Line; Bergen Port is Norway's busiest.

The city centre and northern neighbourhoods are located on the shoreline of Byfjorden. Bergen is known as the city of The Seven Mountains.

Unlike in the previous edition, NRK decided that the host city would be selected through a bidding phase. Right after Norway won the ninth edition, cities were able to joint the race for hosting the upcoming edition. On 7 August 2014, the cities that applied to be in the bidding phase were revealed.

The previous host city and capital of the country, Oslo, revealed that there is no interest in hosting the contest again. There were four applied venues, among them the Vikingskipet (Viking Ship), located in Hamar which was the largest venue that applied to host the contest with a capacity of 20,000. Bergen joined the phase with two venues: the Bergenshallen with a capacity of 5,600 and the Sotra Arena with a capacity of 3,000. The fourth and last venue that had applied was Nordlandshallen in Bodø which can hold up to 5,500 spectators.

The host city was announced on 9 June 2014; Bergen with the Bergenshallen were selected by the Norwegian broadcaster in order to serve as the host venue for the three events of the edition. The head of NRK reportedly said: "We're going back to a smaller venue. We think that the show will be great anyway". It was also reported that the arena's capacity would be enlarged and instead of 5,600, the venue will most likely hold up to 9,000 to 11,000.

Semi-final allocation draw

The draw that determined the semi-final allocation was held on 20 August 2014 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Norge in Bergen. As the pre-qualification round would start after the draw, the spots for the pre-qualification round qualifiers were drawn first. The big 5 countries were first drawn to determine in which semi-final would each country vote. The Netherlands and the United Kingdom were drawn to vote in the first semi-final while Norway, Russia and Ukraine were drawn to vote in the second semi-final. The rest of the forty countries were divided into six pots, based on their geographical place. Each time a country was drawn from the pot, its semi-final and half of the semi-final was determined.

The six pots were the following:

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3
Pot 4 Pot 5 Pot 6

Running order draw

The draw that determined the running order of the edition took place on 11 September 2014 in Bergen. Two countries from each semi-final and a big 5 country received a wildcard and could select their starting position at their half (first or second). Austria and Estonia got the wildcards from the first semi-final, Lithuania and Georgia got the wildcards from the second semi-final while the United Kingdom got the wildcard of the big 5. During the running order draw, the semi-final of the pre-qualification round qualifiers were also determined. The running order draw for the semi-final qualifiers took place after the results of each semi-final with each of the qualifiers drawing their starting position.

Logo and theme

NotUsedLogos10.png
The two proposed logos. The idea of the second was later developed into the used logo.

The logo for the tenth edition of the North Vision Song Contest was designed by Daniel Lengfeld. The first proposed logo's idea was developed around the theme Express Yourself. The logo contained a lip which combined the colors of the rainbow. However, the first logo was rejected after discussions.

The colors of the second proposed logo (red, light-red) were chosen to resemble the warmth of being together. The actual slogan for the contest was Share your heart! but was later changed to Feel the passion! after the logo had been discussed once again. Other suggestions were discussed too but not used. In the beginning phase, the logo contained a heart made out of ribbon. It was changed to an ornament heart with a special pattern in dark red colours.
